A friend introduced me to a website recently and I am SO excited to use it on our RV adventure this week! It’s called RoadTrippers.com and I thought I’d give you a little tour of it today in case you had never heard of it either.
Here’s a look at the home page:
To plan our route, I just entered the city we’re leaving from and the city we’re ultimately driving to in the boxes at the bottom of the home page.
Then, on the left side of the screen, you’ll find a sidebar that looks like this:
Up at the top of that sidebar, you’ll find a horizontal menu that looks like this:
You can find exactly what you’re looking for on your route by clicking on those little icons. For instance, if we were looking for RV parks, we’d click on the little teepee icon and then click on “RV parks”.
That would pull up every RV park listed on our route:
And then you’ll also find links to pages where you can see pictures of and read reviews about each of the RV parks listed on the route.
So for example, if I click on the Lake Barkley State Resort listing in the photo below…
…this listing would pop up:
On that page, you can find information, photos, a description of the resort and reviews submitted by folks who have stayed there.
My favorite part about searching for things is how easy it is to choose what I want to look for. Each of the icons drops down to a menu of lots of options to choose from. Accommodations:
Attractions and Culture:
Food & Drink:
Outdoors & Recreation:
Points of Interest:
And let’s say I clicked on “Offbeat Attractions” on the Attractions & Culture icon, and zoomed in on a specific area of the map, I’d find several interesting options to choose from.
I’m sure Steevenson’s favorite would be the fossil gorge!
It’s super easy to add stops to your route and, from what I can tell, it will take a lot of the guesswork out of choosing where to stay, eat and explore along the way.
Have you ever used Roadtrippers.com? I’d love to hear about your experience if you have and I’ll let you know how it works out for us when we get back!
